    Hi Joseph,
    I think you have designed a beautiful model! Thank you very much for making it available as a free downloadable model!
    I´m building it at the moment - I´m through with all the formers and wing spars, which I have mounted to 1mm thick cardboard, with extra reinforcements on the wing parts. I might make two additional wing formers because I´m making it from size European A3 sheets. I will now proceed with the cover "skin", which I printed on 160g/m2 semi-matte photo paper. The colours came out very bright and saturated.
    I´ve even bought four really good-looking metal wheels with black rubber tires in the correct sizes (not so cheap trick)! Perhaps I should make retractable landing gear for all the wheels as well... would be fun!
    I´m trying to decide whether to have clear plastic in the canopy or not - we´ll see later on... it should give the plane a more realistic appearance.
    This is a quite an original model of a highly unusual airplane!
    I like it a lot. I will display it next to the Junkers Ju-52/3m model from GPM (the yellow-green Mediterranian/Crete version), which will be my next (long-time) project (with almost 1.500 individual parts!)
